Covid-19 Update: Week of December 6

Governor Murphy today announced that there were 3,821 new positive cases and an additional 55 confirmed deaths resulting from COVID-19. To date, there have been 390,256 confirmed cases, and 15,794 confirmed deaths. The rate of transmission is at 1.14. There are 388 cases linked to the 88 school outbreaks.

The State continues to ask residents to download and use the new Covid Alert NJ, the State’s exposure notification smartphone app.

 Since our last update, Governor Murphy issued the following COVID-19 related Executive Order:

Executive Order 207: automatically enrolls residents who choose to receive a COVID-19 vaccine into the state’s existing vaccine registry. The order changes the inclusion into the New Jersey Immunization Information System from an opt-in to an opt-out program for residents who elect to receive a COVID-19 vaccine.

 
The State Police issued Administrative Order 2020-24 clarifying that indoor entertainment centers where a performance is viewed or given including movie theaters, performing arts centers, and other concert venues, may host performances in an adjacent outdoor area with a maximum capacity equivalent to the facility’s indoor capacity.

On Thursday, the Department of Labor announced over 17,000 new applications for unemployment. As a reminder, the federal pandemic unemployment benefits authorized under the CARES Act will expire on December 26, impacting just under 500,000 New Jersey claimants. All eligible weeks prior to December 26 will continue to be paid.
